    I guess he will have to enter as a man since he has no womb or ovaries.

    My mom had a complete hysterectomy. So does that make her a man?

    She was born that way and has undescended testes.

  6. Colebabie profile image59
    Colebabieposted 8 years ago

    However the lack of a womb or ovaries does not make someone a "man". That was my point smile

  7. Uninvited Writer profile image83

    Exactly. I have so much sympathy for her...what a way to find out.

    A bi-sexual?

    What are you talking about? I can find no reference anywhere to Caster Semenya's sexuality.

    Surely even you could not mistake gender with sexuality?

    Yeah I don't see that anywhere either ryan...

      I guess that he means hermaphrodite, but it would take an idiot to get that wrong.... surely? wink

        I'm thinking he means intersex. Maybe he just has the terminology mixed up.

    I think she deserves a great deal of empathy at this point in her life. It can't be easy to be dealing with this.

      I agree, I have a great deal of sympathy, and the worlds media (as usual) have acted in a disgraceful manner. Not that they will ever change.

      BUT..... I have to be realistic here, if she does have large amounts of male hormones, she cannot be allowed to compete against women. They are not allowed to pump themselves with testosterone, and she is technically just going to take a gold medal from somebody.

      It must be an incredible blow to her, to find out that her dreams will most likely be left in shatters.

      1. Colebabie profile image59
        Colebabieposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        She has three times the amount of testosterone normal for women. I have a high amount of testosterone, and a friend has twice the normal amount. Once the testes are removed this will drop significantly. Or if she decides to not undergo surgery, there are medications that help to level out the hormone.

          Oh ok, well hopefully they can 'fix' her (that sounds really bad). As long as they are convinced that she no longer has an advantage over the other female athletes, then I can see no problem with her competing. But until that point, I suppose it would be unfair. I cross my fingers for her anyway.

    Colebabieposted 8 years ago

    I agree. First to have to deal with it, then to have to do it publicly, then to worry about something that you love and hard work being taken away from you. (Although that shouldn't happen)

    The test results will be available in november. So all the stupid curious will have to wait until then. Poor girl/ boy , whatever ! sad

      Well the test results have been leaked already, thats what this thread is about. The world knew the results before her..... thanks to Australian media. Its disgusting that they didnt have the decency to allow her to be told first. I hope that they enjoy the extra traffic to their website.

      November is actually the date that the International body for athletics (cant remember what it is called sorry) might be IFFA or something...... are making a decision and announcement in relation to the test findings.

        Worse,then. She's finding out now, and in november she has to go through it again DISGUSTING !!

    There is talk that surgery to remove the testes and hormone treatments can help her become more female.
